Drop The Mic, which TBS debuts in the fall, had a much faster path from Late Late Show segment to series than did Carpool Karaoke, creators told TV critics at TCA. It started as a tryout on a Tuesday in May 2016 when host James Corden faced off with Anne Hathaway. On YouTube, the rap smackdown clocked 6 million view in 18 hours, Corden reminisced. David Schwimmer, scheduled to guest on the show that Thursday, said he wanted to do same. “We never normally do the same bit… »

Let’s be real, with every casting and film announcement each day, it’s hard to keep up with what’s what. I had pretty much forgotten about “Serenity” until it jogged in the head this morning that it’s the newest film from writer/director “Stephen Knight known for “Locke,” with Tom Hardy, “Eastern Promises,” “Peaky Blinders” and “Taboo.” His latest, “Serenity” is a noir thriller starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, plus Jason Clarke Djimon Hounsou, and Jeremy Strong.

One of the most intriguing projects at the European Film Market in Berlin earlier this year was “Serenity,” the new film from Steven Knight (“Locke,” “Dirty Pretty Things”). The project drew the interest of Oscar winners Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway and suddenly became a high profile title, and today comes our first look at the actors in the Caribbean-set noir mystery.

Although it was initially reported that Amy Schumer was in talks to star in the Barbie movie, the comedian dropped out not long after due to a scheduling conflict. At the time, the live-action film was described by Variety as having a tone similar to Splash, Enchanted, and Big and was being produced by Mattel. The movie will follow a woman living in "a perfect land of Barbies" who "slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn't fit it. She is expelled from the idealistic land and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset." Now, thanks to The New York Times's profile on Sony Pictures producer Amy Pascal, we know that the movie is still in production despite losing the Snatched actress. The article noted that "negotiations are underway with an Oscar-winning actress for the tonally tricky title role," and it now appears »

Schumer was originally attached to star in the Sony movie, which is described as a fish-out-of-water tale about a woman who slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit into the perfect land of Barbies and journeys to the real world.
The comedian dropped out in March over "scheduling conflicts." In an Instagram post, Schumer gave her blessing to Hathaway, who is the frontrunner for the role but still has not negotiated a deal.

Amy Schumer served up her best plate of friendly sass amid news that Anne Hathaway may be picking up where she left off. Rewind to last December when E! News confirmed the Trainwreck star was in talks to take on the title role of Barbie in Sony's upcoming live-action version. However, those plans came to a screeching halt three months later when the Emmy Award winner announced that she was no longer in the running. "Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts," Schumer said in a statement to E! News. "The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I'm bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big »
Scheduling conflicts may have prevented Amy Schumer from continuing in Sony Pictures’ live-action Barbie movie, but that doesn’t mean she’s mad at Anne Hathaway for possibly stepping into the title character’s plastic heels.
On Tuesday, the 36-year-old comedian posted about the potential casting of Hathaway in the role, responding to news that the Oscar-winning actress was in talks to replace her in the feature film.
“Hathaway smathaway,” Schumer captioned a selfie — quickly pointing out that she was joking. “Jkjk she’s perfect!! Can’t wait to see it!”
Though Hathaway is the frontrunner for the part, a »

Kate Hudson showed fans how to lose your hair in 10 seconds on Tuesday, when she was spotted sporting a new buzz cut on the Los Angeles set of her new movie, Sister.
The 38-year-old actress shaved off her famous long blonde locks for the flick, which comes from Australian singer/songwriter Sia — who also wrote and is directing the project.
It’s the most drastic haircut Hudson has had since she found breakout success in 2000’s Almost Famous.
It also makes the Fabletics mogul look even more like her mother Goldie Hawn, who rocked a longer pixie cut in the »

The Barbie movie that somehow keeps happening continues to happen, as The Hollywood Reporter claims that Anne Hathaway is in talks to step into Barbie’s high-heeled plastic shoes. With her being an Oscar winner and this being a movie based on a doll based on a German erotic novelty gift and all, Hathaway reportedly agreed to negotiations as long as she got to hand-pick a director. That director is Alethea Jones, an Australian up-and-comer whose feature debut, Fun Mom Dinner, comes out on August 4.
Before previous star Amy Schumer dropped out, citing scheduling conflicts, the movie was said to be about a misfit Barbie who’s exiled to the real world after realizing that sitting around the Malibu Barbie Beach House with Ken all day is bullshit. (We’re paraphrasing, but you get the idea.) Schumer and her sister were also taking a third pass on the script »

Come hell or high water, Sony is determined to have a live action “Barbie” movie in cinemas on June 29, 2018. The reason is as transparent and bland as you’d expect: money. When original star Amy Schumer left the picture over “scheduling conflicts,” the project put Sony in a bind because Mattel has a whole new product line readied for roll-out, with other licensing and promotional deals likely mapped out.

Anne Hathaway is talking about stepping into the role of Barbie for Sony Pictures, though the studio said “it is premature.” That comes even as its known that Alethea Jones also has been circling to direct after a nod from Hathaway. Hathaway had been in the mix shortly after Amy Schumer left the project in March. The first big-screen, live-action Barbie film promises to get a huge marketing push from Sony and its partner Mattel in the summer 2018. The movie is being… »
Studio reps said the casting is premature as scheduling arrangements have not been worked out and there is no deal as yet.
The big screen adaptation of Mattel’s iconic toy line was originally expected to start production on June 23, but Schumer’s busy schedule included a promotional tour for her new Fox comedy “Snatched,” as well as shooting for Rebecca Miller’s “She Came to Me” opposite Steve Carell.
Sony still intends to stick to its projected June 29, 2018 release date, though it’s not clear when production would start. Mattel already has merchandise and product cycles in motion, and shifting the production to accommodate Schumer would have put on a strain on »
